  1. Obviously still in demo mode. How Many Times is one of the few tracks I liked on Wild! It seemed to me that erasure had lost their way after The Innocents with Wild! It was collectively just too camp and insipid for my liking (La Gloria needs to be burned WITH the hole-y fire of several straitened mâles' sacrifices and its still echoing ashes blowtorched back into whatever mindhole it managed to mince out from (or blown directly into Stevie Nicks' fundament, just like the cocaine she had Fleetwooded therein by her aiding and a-bate-ing fellow cocaine members (this is true, as well as the genesis of their hit Rumors)). What amazes me is after that hole [sic] project Vince managed to master his sound bringing us what is his and my favourite ever erasure album in 1991, Chorus, which I utterly LOVE, from its ten basic tracks to its many remixes and especially b -sides. The eponymous track's single release was like a breath of fresh air as well as a sigh of relief after the Drama! of the preceding two years.

  2. Same arpeggio, bass line and other synth parts, just different sounds. Glad they changed the drum part though. The outro was used live. I loved Wild! Still do, La Gloria included, showed variety. Just didn't see the point in the "Piano song" instrumental intro. Was hardly a "wild!" album opener… Drama should have been the first track.
